Make a Card Monday: Meadow Dies (Last Chance!)

I'm kicking off this week with another Make a Card Monday project featuring some LAST CHANCE products from the retiring Stampin' Up! 2023-24 Annual Catalog. I'm also sharing a fun technique that works particularly well with the retiring Meadow Dies, but really you could use it with any detail dies in your stash to give your projects an artistic flair.

You can watch the video HERE to see the ink blending technique I share, and see how this card came together.

The cards I'm sharing today feature the following products, all currently on the LAST CHANCE LIST from Stampin' Up! and most of them are discounted as part of the LAST CHANCE SALE going on through the end of April, 2024, while supplies last.

Here is a closer look at the two cards I'm sharing today in the video...

The first card shows how you can take scraps of card stock in different colors of green and die cut them out to create a small botanical bouquet for your card front. The second card is similar, but I did a little paper piecing to give that green stem a purple flower, by cutting it once from Granny Apple Green card stock and once from Highland Heather card stock and then pieced them together with a little adhesive.

For the card demonstration today (in the video), show you how to add ink to some white card stock with ink blending brushes and then die cut the areas to get colored die cut components. In this photo I share the two cards side by side---in the first card I die cut the pieces from card stock and in the second card I used that ink blending technique and THEN die cut the pieces from the ink blended card stock.

The different is very subtle, certainly easier to see in real life, but I love the artsy look it gives the elements on the card front.

I hope you enjoyed the card for today and that simple technique that can make you feel like the stamp artist you are! Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks so much for having a look at my creations today. ~ Kristine
